One Month Old!

Joel ~
I can't believe you are one month old! It seems like just yesterday we brought you home from the hospital. Everyone keeps telling me and Daddy not to blink because you will be grown man before we know it! I'm starting to think they may be right because according the pediatrician you definitely are growing fast! On February 7th, at your newborn follow up, you weighed 7 lbs 8 oz.. On February 9th you had a checkup to make sure you were eating enough, and you weighed 8 lbs 3 oz.. And on February 21st, at your two week checkup, you were 9 lbs 10 oz and 22.5 inches long! Me and Daddy are already taking bets on how big we think you will be at your next checkup! I have to admit though.. it's a little bittersweet for Mommy that you are growing so fast! I'm excited to watch you learn and experience new things, but part of me wants you to stay my little baby forever! I know that's not possible though so for now I'm just going to cherish every single moment the best I can.

A week after you were born you were able to meet your Grammie. She stayed with us for a week and y'all quickly bonded. We were sad when she had to leave.. and Grammie was worried you would forget about her, but you always smile super big when you hear her voice on the phone so I don't think that's a problem! :)
I can't wait for you to meet the rest of your family in a few months! They already love you so much and I know it breaks their hearts that they can't see you now. Mommy and Daddy are hoping (and praying) that one day we will live closer to all of them so they can be a bigger part of your life.

Mommy loves you, Joel!
